Married to Rashmi, he and his wife have been blessed with three beautiful daughters, and resides in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Enya, his oldest daughter loves peanut butters but she could not offer PBJ sandwich to her friends due to nut allergies, a snack she loves so dearly because of its rich sweet and salty taste.

Having realized the limited options for people who are allergic to nuts, Sunil decided to look for an alternative ways of making protein rich Peanut butter tasting spread without nuts and without compromising the texture and flavor.

Having grown up with chickpeas as a staple in his childhood home and knowing the benefits of the protein-rich, nutty flavor of roasted chickpeas, he imagined that using chickpeas could make a nut-free peanut butter. After over a year and a half, Sunil created The Amazing Chickpea spread, the delicious and nutritious spread that tastes like peanut butter without any nuts!

Sunil started selling The Amazing Chickpea butter spread to local twin cities farmers’ market, finding customers surprised at how similar The Amazing Chickpea tastes like peanut butter. Now after two and half years, The Amazing Chickpeas is sold in retail stores, not only in the USA but Canada as well. Later on, he created a chocolate flavor of The Amazing Chickpea, Choc-a-Chic, that tastes like popular hazelnut spread brands but contains less sugar and fat, and it contains no nuts!



With all the obvious health benefits of The Amazing Chickpea, the greatest may be it's delicious flavor. While other "nut" butters have removed peanuts from their recipes, in a lot of cases, they've also removed the flavor. The beloved, iconic American peanut butter flavor, with its balance of sweet, salty and unique protein-rich flavor, is missing from most other spreads. Whereas that flavor profile is front and center in The Amazing Chickpea Spreads. With a mixture of chickpeas, sunflower seeds, oleic sunflower oil and sugar, The Amazing Chickpea captures the essential flavor that people love so much. Most people are sure they are tasting peanut butter when they taste The Amazing Chickpea. If you are still in doubt, we would like you to try our Amazing Chickpea Butter and judge for yourself!

The Amazing Chickpea a unique Chickpea butter spread that provides great taste and nutrition without the concerns of nut allergies. The Amazing Chickpea is currently sold in retail stores in both the United States and Canada.
